The new generation low-cost carrier VietJetAir officially launched a domestic route linking Ho Chi Minh City and the central city of Vinh on November 15.

There will be one flight everyday using Airbus A320 which seats 180 passengers.

This is the carrier’s sixth destination in the domestic air network apart from Hanoi, HCM City, Hai Phong, Da Nang and Nha Trang.

VietJetAir Deputy General Director Pritam Singh said the service is launched to meet the increasing demands of local and foreign visitors.

The airline is expanding its network throughout the country by increasing the flight frequency on existing routes and launching new services to Da Lat, Hue and Phu Quoc, he said.

On this occasion, VietJetAir started a promotion campaign, offering one-way ticket from Vinh to HCM City at only 499,000 VND until December 10.-VNA
